The Calgardup Cave walk was fun. Having helmets, head torches and a hand torch made it better. Unlike some other tourist caves, there was no lighting inside of the cave, so when you turn off your torch it's really dark and it felt like a...More
This a a self guided tour with a small info session at the start. You take it at your own pace and are given hard hats and different lights at the start to use through the cave. Requires a bit of cardio but well worth...More

Thanks for your great review and we're glad you all enjoyed your experience.
